I would. It's easier to get an SCI somewhere if you've already had one, but the SCI is project-specific and does not follow you when you leave the project like your clearance does. They may decide it's not worth it to hire you if you've never had an SCI but it doesn't hurt to try. And most recruiters don't understand this process at all so it's best to make it through that hurdle and then ask the hiring manager about it later.
